Q. Where can I find the Baker College policy regarding retaking courses?
Contact a One Stop Advisor to get advice about retaking a class at 833-691-7867.
According to the Student Handbook:
Repeat Course Policy
Students may repeat courses to improve their grades. Financial aid may be available to help pay for a repeated course if the student’s existing grade in the course is an F or W. If the student received a passing grade (D-or better), financial aid may be used to repeat the course only one time.
A third attempt on any course must be approved by an Academic Specialist. Students may be required to pay all related tuition and fees for a third attempt. Financial aid is not available for coursework completed in a previously earned certificate or degree program.
If a student repeats a course, the higher or highest of the grades will be used in computing the student’s GPA. However, all grades will remain on the student’s official transcript.
An attempt is defined as a course completion in which a student is assigned a grade. Withdrawals are considered an attempt only after the refund period.
Some programs are subject to exceptions to the third attempt policy based on licensing, accreditation, and standards, which may stipulate fewer attempts. Census Date Baker College uses the census date to determine a student’s enroll
